Here in the Vineyard we have a saying: Everybody gets to play! It means we take seriously Jesus’ command to ALL of his followers to ‘Go and make disciples‘.
In our fellowship, everybody is picked on the team. Church is not a spectator sport where you watch from the sidelines. The Bible talks about the ‘Priesthood of all believers’. We may have different gifts and functions in the Body but without you we’re missing something!
We are passionate about equipping and releasing disciples to go and make more disciples. The good news is you’re never too old or young to serve our King. For example, more than half our adults help disciple our children and more than a half of our fellowship is part of our worship team.
While we have many leaders, we see their roles primarily as raising up others and encouraging all of us to grow in: pastoring; praying, serving the least, the last and the lost; teaching; worshipping; witnessing; being a blessing through our day-to-day work and lives; and the list goes on.
Vineyard is committed to seeing the Church grow and multiply. Whatever your skills and interests we believe that God has made you well for his purposes. Come as you are, be real and expect to grow. Jesus said his disciples would do greater things than he did. So get out there on the field and give it your best shot!
